Waterboarding memo lawyers will not be disciplined - Telegraph
The US government lawyers who provided legal justification for the harsh interrogation of terror suspects, including waterboarding, "exercised poor judgment" but will not be disciplined, the justice department has said. The decision brings to a close a bitterly-debated chapter in the debate about how the Bush administration fought the war on terror in the wake of the Sept 11 attacks on New York and Washington.
After five years of heated internal wrangling, the justice department has rejected calls by its own ethics investigators for tougher measures against the two men.
